Before the -8 and 787 Boeing did build aircraft to customer specifications. Just look at the hydraulic panel. How many auxiliary hydraulic pumps are there? What powers the hydraulic demand pumps? Which is why there are all the notes about specific tail numbers in the FCOM.

Which is why itís a 747-8, not a -800. Those extra digits specify the customer option package. Kind of like a Camry SE vs XLE. These days Boeings only come one flavor because their specs are more determined by leasing companies than airlines. They need airliners to be easily traded between client airlines and not concerned that the galleys or systems donít match.

The -8's still have plane-specific differences, so saying they are all the same is not accurate.

I know of pilots going from B1900 straight into the 747, at Atlas even, and a good friend recently went from Twin Otter to 777 at Purple and is doing great. However, this is the first time I have seen this sort of thing regarding Atlas...



I have 7800+ hours, been with a foreign ACMI company (turboprop) for the last 10 years, but have previous 121 time from the early 2000s including DHC-8. Certainly no heavy international time. And, honestly, I have been out of the US system for a long time. Should I be concerned?

I have no desire for the legacies, as the schedules and commuting would not really work for me at all, and I am used to and prefer having chunks of work followed by chunks of time off. Kalitta is the only other company I am considering at the moment.

Thanks again for the thousands of contributions, which I have combed through most of over the last few months.
Based on the info youíve shared here, youíre prime for Atlas. Best of luck, I hope you get the call.

I just finished up with the 737 training last month. Plan on being in Miami for 90 days. The training is broken down like this. 1 Week indoc, 1 week Ground school. 1 week of CBTs and the rest of the time are simulators with the Oral and Type ride. Once you finish up your type you still have 4 Sim sessions left.
